ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Private funeral services for Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson will be held in his hometown of Detroit on Saturday.

The team made the announcement Thursday, two days after the 95-year-old Hall of Fame owner died at his home in Grosse Pointe Shores, Mich.

The Bills are planning to hold a public celebration and remembrance honoring Wilson at a date that has yet to be determined.

The Bills ask that donations made on Wilson's behalf be made out to the Hospice Foundation of Western new York, the Alzheimer's Association Greater Michigan chapter, and St. John Hospital Medical Center in support of the Wilson telemonitoring program.
